COOK LOOKING TO TURN UP THE HEAT

16 January 2015

Wide man ready to right the wrongs as we head to Colchester...

WALSALL wide-man, Jordan Cook, insists the players are out to 'right some wrongs' against Colchester United on Saturday (3pm kick off).

After dominating the opening period against Scunthorpe United last time out, The Saddlers were made to pay the price for not finding the net and Cook is keen to make amends this weekend.

“It’s a massive chance to bounce back,” he insisted. “We’re obviously all very disappointed with the Scunthorpe game.

“There were signs early on in the game that we were on top and looking at the shot count after the game, it tells a different story to the final result.

“We made four mistakes and gifted them goals, which isn’t good enough for us. We know we have to improve and we are looking forward to getting ourselves back on track with a good performance."

Dean Smith’s men travel to Essex off the back of three successive home defeats but Cook maintains the sides form away from The Banks’s is encouraging.

“Our away from has been decent of late,” he added. “It’s almost as if we’re getting the results away from home that we should be getting when teams come down here.

“Colchester have some very good young players though and they can cause problems for anyone in this League.

“But we need to go there, concentrate on what we can do and approach the game as we always do, by looking to take all three points.

“The mood in the camp is positive, as it has been all season. We’re all eager to get back out there and play to show everyone what we’re about and put right some of the wrongs.”

From a personal point of view, the 24 year-old admits he hasn't 'hit the heights' so far this season, but is adamant things will start to turn.

“I feel good now," he went on. "I had that injury in the summer and then the recent illness took a lot out of me. To come straight back in for the Preston game was tough but there’s no excuses.

I haven’t hit the heights I’d have hoped for just yet but I know I can improve and I know I will. I feel a lot better now, a lot fresher and I can’t wait for the game on Saturday.“
